Term dates

Information on term dates for the 2022-23 school year in Leicester. Future term dates for 2023-24 to 2026-27 and can be found at the bottom of this page.

Term dates

The information below shows the date patterns we set, which all maintained and voluntary controlled schools in the city are obliged to follow.

Children are expected to attend 190 days in each school year. Schools identify five other days for staff training, these are known as INSET days. Schools can choose different dates on which to close for INSET days, the local authority recommends some of these days. We strongly advise that you check with your own school directly to confirm.

Academies and free schools are able to set their own term dates, you should always check with the school directly to ask them about their own term dates.
